The Department asks that all written comments pertaining to the current regulations and the draft revisions be submitted to Kum S. Ham, Ph.D., Director, Division of Emergency Medical Services Systems, Room 1033 Health and Welfare Building, P. O. Box 90, Harrisburg, PA 17108, by the close of business on August 4, 1997. The Department will begin the next stage of its review on that date.
On August 4, 1997, the Department will also be conducting a public meeting on the regulations in Room 812 of the Health and Welfare Building, Commonwealth Avenue and Forster Street, Harrisburg, PA, commencing at 10 a.m. Any person who wishes to present testimony at this meeting should contact Ruth W. Seneca, at the same address as Dr. Ham's, by July 11, 1997. Ruth Seneca's telephone number is (717) 787-8741. If the number of people who timely contact Ruth Seneca to register to speak is large enough to warrant relocation of the meeting to a larger room, notice of a changed site for the meeting will be published in the July 26, 1997 edition of the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
For additional information, for persons with a disability who require an auxiliary aide service or other accommodation to attend the meeting or review the draft revisions to the regulations, contact Ruth Seneca.
The scheduled meeting is subject to cancellation without notice.
